Kidney Cancer Clinical Trial
Neoadjuvant Sitravatinib in Combination With Nivolumab in Patients With Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma
The study will evaluate the clinical activity of sitravatinib in combination with nivolumab in patients with locally-advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) in the neoadjuvant setting prior to nephrectomy.
Sitravatinib is a receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) that targets multiple closely related receptor tyrosine kinase pathways including VEGFR, PDGFR, c-KIT, MET, and the TAM family of receptors (TYRO3, AXL, and MER). Nivolumab is a monoclonal antibody directed against PD-1 and blocks the interaction between PD-1 and its ligands, thereby releasing PD-1-mediated inhibition of T-cell proliferation (including cytotoxic CD8+ T-cells) and cytokine production. Together, sitravatinib and nivolumab may cooperate to elicit greater anti-tumor activity than either agent alone, as sitravatinib is predicted to enhance several steps in the cancer immunity cycle that may augment the efficacy of nivolumab.
